The NBA mourns with the Chairmen and members of all the NBA branches in Delta State over the painful passing away of a distinguished and great lawyer, Chief A.P.J. Okpakpor, who passed on yesterday, Friday, the 10th day of July, 2021.
Chief A.P.J. Okpakpor was the first Attorney General of Delta State upon the creation of the State. He was also a prominent politician and community leader in Isoko land.

On behalf of the National officers and members of the Nigerian Bar Association, the NBA President expresses his condolences to the leaders and members of Warri, Ughelli, Effurun, Udu, Oleh, Sapele, Asaba, Ogwashi-uku and Agbor branches, the family and friends of our departed reverred colleague.
